So far these are looking like the two best teams in the Central. Both seem destined for the playoff right now and there should be a good buzz in the building for this mid week tilt.
Milwaukee has really shone in the early going but Detroit is no slouch for sure. Giannis is the star but there are lots of good players on display in this one.
The Pistons had been on a roll, winning five in a row before getting smashed by Oklahoma City on Monday. They now hit the road but only for a game.
What was especially disappointing and surprising is how Detroit got taken advantage of inside. Steven Adams scored 21 points and Nerlens Noel had 12 in reserve. Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin had no answers.
That duo are usually leading the charge but in this case they were -21 and -22 respectively, the worst on the team. How they bounce back will determine if the Pistons are competitive in this game.
The whole team shot just 33% so there is lots of blame to go around for sure. Detroit may have a nice record but they seem to play a fair number of clunkers.
Hitting the road in this spot is interested. They had been at home for a couple of weeks and return to Detroit for another couple of games.
Even 36 points from Giannis was not enough to stop the Bucks from losing on the road against the Knicks on the weekend. They have had a full three days off to think about it, which is pretty rare in the NBA. They are in a great spot to bounce back.
They will be down a couple of key components in the frontcourt though as John Henson is out, and Ersan Ilyasova is dealing with a concussion that has him questionable. That puts more importance on Thon Maker coming off the bench as their third big man. .
Even though we are a quarter of the way through the season this is the first time these division rivals have met this season. Milwaukee gets to take first blood being at home but both teams are coming off a loss.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
There is no doubt that Milwaukee will be the favourite when this line is posted. I would predict something like -6.
You would like to think a well coached Detroit team would bounce back but it still might not be enough.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pistons ATS / Lean UNDER
I am going to side with the Pistons though. Their frontcourt is good and injuries are going to limit what the Bucks can do with Drummond and Griffin.
